The legendary shows from 1964 and '65, remastered
The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl will be released on September 9 by Apple Corps Ltd. and Universal Music Group.
The album consists of material drawn the band’s three sold-out concerts at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl in 1964 and 1965.
A companion piece to The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, Ron Howard’s documentary feature film about the band’s early career – The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl will be released worldwide on CD and for digital download and streaming on September 9, followed by a 180-gram gatefold vinyl LP on November 18.
The album includes material originally released on the 1977 album, The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl – which has not been officially released on (CD. This new release has been remastered by Giles Martin and includes four previously unreleased tracks.
“A few years ago Capitol Studios called saying they’d discovered some Hollywood Bowl three track tapes in their archive,” says Giles Martin. “We transferred them and noticed an improvement over the tapes we’ve kept in the London archive. Alongside this I’d been working for some time with a team headed by technical engineer James Clarke on demix technology, the ability to remove and separate sounds from a single track. With Sam Okell, I started work on remixing the Hollywood Bowl tapes. Technology has moved on since my father worked on the material all those years ago. Now there’s improved clarity, and so the immediacy and visceral excitement can be heard like never before. My father’s words still ring true, but what we hear now is the raw energy of four lads playing together to a crowd that loved them. This is the closest you can get to being at the Hollywood Bowl at the height of Beatlemania. We hope you enjoy the show…”
